Hawaii Beach Cover-Up

Hawaii Beach Cover-Up
Difficulty level: ** Easy

Free Cover-Up Crochet Pattern

This pattern is easy, quick to crochet and is perfect for the summer beach season. I used two strands of Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread. This has the benefit of making the pattern faster to crochet and also gives the cover-up better drape, complimenting any figure. The pattern is very easy to adjust in terms of length and width to fit your needs. Colors can be chosen to your taste... bright and sunny is best, of course!

Size: one size fits most
